Some Moon Shots

Postby Ceropegia » Sun Feb 08, 2015 4:51 pm

All handheld, taken over the past several years. The first three with my bridge Canon PowerShot SX30 IS with its 35x optical zoom and good image stabilization. The last taken with my bridge SONY DSC-H9 with a 15x optical zoom to see how it compared to the Canon in the previous shot.

Very nice shots of the moon Martha. One of the toughest things to get right. You did a good job

This site makes me sad sometimes, there are such beautiful pictures here and they aren't mine. LAF

Love it and just wish I had taken it! S-
